I've paddled out of Pacifica a couple of times to the South, poking around some spots from "bird rock" to the easy accessed beach south of the point from "devils slide",(where the car remains are). In the rocky cove on the South side of bird rock we've seen seals and avoided them whenever they've been there. I've since been asked if a part of that area isn't a marine preserve. I really don't know & havn't seen any markers but thought I should find out. I'll search for a state site that might map out preserves, but if anyone knows it'd be good to hear what info you have of where to find out more.
